RMX ROUNDUP: The Magician + Darius / Say Lou Lou + Alex Metric / Dotan + Niklas Ibach


So many remixes, so little time. Which is why we serve up the latest and greatest in our semi-weekly Remix Roundup segment.

We begin with the new downtempo Darius rework of The Magician‘s track “Sunlight,” featuring the dazzling vocals of Olly Alexander from Years & Years. The effervescent original was a contender for song of the summer in the eyes of many bloggers — nonetheless, we think it needed that extra something, which is exactly what Parisian producer Darius provides here. His silky and slow-burning approach shines in just the right measure in contrast to the sunny original.

Next is the new Alex Metric deep house remix of Say Lou Lou and Lindstrøm’s “Games for Girls.” Similar in the way Darius does with “Sunlight,” Alex takes the tune from daytime to nighttime in his disco rendition of the electropop single. Stream below.

And finally, we’re loving this vibey rework by Niklas Ibach of a track called “Hungry,” originally by Amsterdam artist Dotan. The young German producer is only 20-years-old, but based on the skills he applies to this addictive track, the world will soon be hungry for more of his work.

Artist Spotlight: Amtrac


Caleb Cornett, also known as Amtrac is a DJ/producer from Kentucky who has been gaining momentum as of late and for good reason. His remix of French producer Milwaukee’s (oxymoron much?) single “Alone” is a gorgeous electro/nu-disco number that improves upon the original.

More recently he also reworked the Alex Metric track “Rave Number.” Stream and download this dance floor-ready tune below.
